BEIJING, Aug. 13 (Xinhua) -- China Friday announced new emergency humanitarian aid worth 50 million yuan (7.35 million U.S. dollars) to flood-hit Pakistan.

The aid, following the earlier 10 million yuan (1.48 million U.S. dollars) worth of relief goods, includes tents, blankets, food and water purification devices that the country desperately needs.

"The aid materials will be delivered to Pakistan as soon as possible," Chinese Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Jiang Yu said.

Jiang expressed China's sympathy to Pakistan. "As a friendly neighbor,we are willing to continue aid within our own capacity to support the Pakistanis to overcome the disaster at an early date."

Pakistan is suffering from the worst floods in 80 years, which have left some 1,500 people dead.
